Fergus Garrett - Succession Planting -
Head gardener and chief executive of the Great Dixter Charitable Trust, Fergus works full-time in the garden as well as writing and lecturing extensively across the world. Great Dixter is the home of succession planting.
The Henleaze Garden Club meets on the first Wednesday of each month except for July and August. Meetings feature expert speakers who cover a range of horticultural topics. In December there is a members' only Christmas Event.
Meetings take place at: The Main Hall, St Monica's, Cote Lane, Westbury-on-Trym.
Doors open at 7pm and the meetings start at 7:30pm.
Car parking is available on site.
At each monthly meeting, we have a Sales Table. It works on a Bring and Buy basis: members donate plants, divisions, seedlings, cards etc which are surplus to their requirements. Before and after the lecture, other members have the opportunity browse and buy. In addition, the Organising Team buy wholesale bulbs in the autumn and spring to sell on to members. Any profit made is used to boost Club funds.
During the summer months the Club makes day visits to gardens of note for which tickets are sold, usually at the April meeting. These visits are normally for members only unless there are spare seats available on the coach. In addition, two residential trips are planned for 2020 - one to The Isle of Wight and the other to the The Gardens of Yorkshire.
The Club publishes a quarterly Newsletter, giving news and details of events, and "Garden Club News" is emailed to members each month.
The Club has a membership limit of 230, which has now been reached for 2020. If you would like to join in the future, there is a waiting list for 2021. Please click on 'Membership' above for details. However, guests are welcome to come to meetings at any time except the December meeting. The entry fee is £5 which includes refreshments and raffle.
Club members receive a 10% discount on plant purchases at the Brackenwood Garden Centre (see Useful Links above).
